The Genus Rhipicephalus (Acari, Ixodidae), A Guide to the Brown Ticks of the World provides identification keys for adult ticks from the Afrotropical regions and elsewhere. For the nymphs and larvae, unique plates have been compiled in which line drawings of the capitula of similar species are grouped together to facilitate identification ; the highly-illustrated keys are to immature stages as well as adults. Brief well-illustrated descriptions of the known stages of every species are given, plus information on their hosts, distribution, and disease relationships. Tables providing data on host/parasite relationships and disease transmission are also included.
